MUSTANG: The MUltiplexed SQUID/TES Array at Ninety GHz


MUSTANG-2 is a 338-pixel array of feedhorn-coupled TES detectors designed to replace MUSTANG-1.5. The dewar, cryogenics, and readout electronics will be the same as MUSTANG-1.5, providing a relatively simple and low-cost transition to a far more capable instrument. MUSTANG-2 will be able to map an 8' x 8' area to 23 microJy in one hour with good image fidelity from 9" to 6'.
